    For WINDOWS XP start system in safe mode and login to system administrator account, access control panel and reset your user admin password.

    Follow the below mentioned steps to reset the administrator password or any other user account password in Windows Vista.


    Step#1: Boot into WinRE using the Vista DVD.


    Step#2: Click Command Prompt


    Step#3: Now type

                    net user <user account> *

                    Press Enter


    Step#4: It will ask for a new password - Enter the new password

                    Press Enter


    Step#5: It will then ask to confirm the password - Confirm the new password

                    Press Enter


    This will reset the user password..


    For example: If you forget the administrator password go to WinRE in Command prompt and type: net user Administrator *

                             Then press enter to enter the new password for the account.
